How to search for groups or channels on Telegram

Telegram is an essential tool if you want to keep in touch with your people, which is why it makes available to its users the so-called Telegram groups or channelswhich we will teach you to search so that you can easily find people who share your same concerns.

What are Telegram groups?

Unlike a private chat where you and the other person can talk, being able to invite others to the chat, in the groups several contacts are usually gathered, being able to see all the messages that the administrators send.

The particularity of these groups is that all users who join these groups can share videos, photos, chats and audiosalways moderated by the creators of the group, being possible to modify for example that only administrators can send messages at a certain time, change the profile picture or even the name of the group.

Difference between Telegram channel and group

Although sometimes they can be used indifferently, Telegram channels have very particular characteristics:

  • Channel followers can only join and view group messages.
  • It is the channel administrators who manage the messages that are sent.
  • Therefore, they are simply a means of communication for the followers of a brand or group, rather than a group chat.
